Kristinia DeBarge, singer and daughter of James DeBarge (from the group DeBarge), has a genuine passion for using her talents to help raise diabetes awareness.
Kristinia has been impacted by diabetes due to the loss of two family members to the disease. Early on in her life, Kristinia realized the strain diabetes put on her family, so she became curious about the disease and decided to research ways to fight it. Growing up, Kristinia struggled with weight as a consequence of bad eating habits. As a result, Kristinia decided to turn her attention to diabetes education, awareness and prevention and was able to lend her talents by performing at fundraisers at a young age.
"Kristinia is committed to the fight to Stop Diabetes® so it no longer continues to impact her family and communities around the world."
